We were planning to implement Role-Based-Access-Control(RBAC) for our impala tables we tried Sentry but there is a prerequisite of installing Kerberos which we don't want to use. So Apache Ranger is the other option we have but the latest CDH version 6.3 has Impala 3.2 which does not support Ranger. So just wanted to if there is going to be release of new CDH bundle which will have Impala 3.3.0 and support for ranger? What will be approximate release date of the new CDH bundle?
Apologies for terribly delayed response. The reason why we don't want to install kerberos is that we are using a third party BI tool which connect to our DW Infrastucture(consisting of Kudu, Hive Metastore and Impala) and the tool does not support kerberos authentication. We are heavily dependent on the on the BI tool which we use and cannot do away with it. Sentry enforces to use kerberos for authentication while Ranger does not enforce this as it supports other authentication mechanisms as well. That's why we are waiting eagerly for cloudera to release a version of Impala(supported by 3.3 latest released by cloudera is 3.2) which supports Ranger. Also it will be great if you can suggest any other solution enforcing the Access controls which does not involve kerberos.
